A cold front is slowly moving south into Louisiana along with a disturbance that is moving along it. Combine that with plenty of tropical moisture over Baton Rouge and daytime heating and that will give us scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could be strong to severe at times. Heavy rain is very likely as well. Flash flooding could be an issue later today as rainfall totals could be around 1 to 3 inches across Southeast Louisiana, and some places could get even more. The rain will help to keep high temperatures only in the upper 80s.
The cold front will move toward the Louisiana Coast tonight. This will keep us mostly cloudy with a few showers. Low temperatures will fall to the lower 70s.
